Age UK Lancashire's Day Time Support Service provides an opportunity for those in later life to socialise, learn or relearn skills and take part in fun activities. The service is delivered in a friendly, welcoming and safe small group environment. We offer a range of activities which build confidence, promote independence and, most importantly, are engaging and fun! Our local community based centres are equipped with modern, appropriate facilities and resources and all of our members retain a guaranteed place on day/s of their choice.
Day Time Support provides much needed respite to families caring for individuals and important social interaction for older people who are isolated. We have designated centre’s providing both dementia support and enhanced support for people with a need for a higher level of care. Our professional and qualified team provide a wide ranging variety of enjoyable activities designed to encourage participation and stimulation. We provide a nutritional, healthy two course meal with refreshments and snacks throughout the day and offer free taster sessions. All individuals are fully assessed to ensure that their needs are met in a person centred way, we make this process as simple and straightforward as possible and liaise with social workers on your behalf if required.
Our highly trained, dedicated staff and volunteers are experienced in building trust and confidence whilst providing responsive and sensitive care. The needs of individuals are at the heart of the service which is delivered within appropriate staffing levels, supported by volunteers. Age UK Lancashire specialises in providing quality services to the older people of Lancashire and aims to ensure that each person has a positive experience. Centres are staffed with a minimum ratio of 1 member of staff to 3 Day Time Support members (with enhanced needs) and 1 member of staff to 6 members (with standard needs).
